Given the time for which this film was produced, it is a superb documentary of the events leading up to our involvement to the second world war. As Frank Capra had also done, this film lets the documented facts speak for themselves, a brilliantly simple. propaganda technique.

Very well put together history of the events leading up to the war using mostly news archives from the US, and as well from other news organizations. This has a lot of footage you've seen before, (aka the taking over of Germany, Pearl Harbor) and some you havent (Whoa! I never knew the Nazi Party had a rally in NYC, In Madison Square Garden no less!!) so some of it is quite fascinating. The first half is better than the second half, which is, excuse the term, a bit pedestrian. And there's some rather spotty editing, not too sure if it's splices or what, but some scenes are badly put together. But still, amazing footage!
